Alternate fortune cookie reading

We have a large bag of fortune cookies on the counter in my office, and I pull one out at the end of days when I need a quick sugar rush to get me through the evening commute (common given my chronic sleep deprivation these days).

For almost as long as I've been eating fortune cookies, I've mentally appended "... in bed" to the end of them. Last night, I thought of an alternate trick that can be almost as much fun, can be safely used in mixed or overly conservative company, is a wry comment on modern society, and it even works with those poorly-written fortunes for which "... in bed" results in complete nonsense:

Instead append ".com". For example:

Tomorrow will bring all sorts of good things.com

Today is a 7.com

This weekend will be filled with luck.com

You are the master of every situation.com
